't have to continue. khzaei -- karzai was a great hope. everyone no knows him respected him. he might change his mind. the pressures that led him to permit and maybe support this corrupt structure could be reversed over time. the people up and down that structure might change their mind. the parliament is -- has stood up against his nominations. who's knows who's going to happen up and down that road. if we succeed in something that we can do, peter has pointed out the crucial important to the kandahar road. than doesn't be impossible to secure that. that changes the economic nature of southern afghanistan. it could get better. >> if i could just add one point. there's no question that the ghost of vietnam haunts this administration. i can tell you from being in it for 60 days. the ghost of what happened to lyndon johnson walks the corridors of this white house, it walks the corridors of this building every day. it's a mistake. we got to get over it. we got to stop fighting the vietnam war. i don't know whether we could have won or not, but it is not relevant to afghanistan. as marc p

. the book centers on this incident which i described where u.s. special operators blocked hamid karzai's planned governor for kabul. she interweaves into it a very well-written and interestingly a history that is well-written, well-organized, and based on a lot of her own research with the original sources. a second really important understanding of the country can be gotten from joe haversty's book "the opium season" which details a year in which he was involved in as a subcontractor in the usaid efforts in 2 004-2005 to provide alternative livelihood's to draw with the work force from up opium production. it gives a great view of the violence and corruption. and moreover it shows the bureaucratic profiteering and dysfunction that is increasing the complexity and cost of our involvement, not just in war, but in development. a third source, and i think it is outstanding if you want to understand the country is rory stewart, who within weeks after the fall of the taliban walked to kabul in the winter which is supposed to kill you and through pashtun villages and described that experienc
.s. officials cannot have liked the message they heard from afghanistan's president today. hamid c hamid karzai warned u.s. troops may be needed for at least ten years to help train afghan forces. tom aspell is in london for us this morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. representatives from more than 60 countries gathered here in london seeking to buy off taliban fighters from a $500 million fund. it's hoped at least 12,000 lower-level taliban can be persuaded to abandon the insurgency and accept payment to defend their villages while western military forces go after hard-core taliban fighters. at the same time the west will effort training and equipping half g afghan aftermys to take over security duties after 2011. hamid karzai says he sees afghan forces being deployed for another decade. he says he hopes the government can establish control over the country's 34 provinces by 2015. karzai hopes to convene a meeting of afghan elders to discuss his proposals to reach out to taliban leaders, but the united states says it doesn't see any talks taking place with any top taliban leadership
this week. and karzai raised some eyebrows, it seems, by suggesting reconciliation with taliban leadership. this is by people on the ground, low-level folks, the u.s. working a way to work with those kind of taliban. but in terms of the leadership, does karzai have any international support for this concept? >> absolutely. i don't know, i mean, certainly as far as we're concerned, we weren't raising our eyebrows. that's what we were expecting to hear. because if you want to win against an insurgency, you've got to have strong military force, you've got to put pressure on the insurgents. but ultimately, this is going to be won by political means. you've got to divide the opposition and pull across as many people as possible. and that's going to happen bottom up with the low-level fighters and the middle level fighters and the tribal leaders. >> is that realistic, to think that taliban leaders want a political solution? i mean, do you make that distinguish -- i know the taliban does not equal al qaeda, but is it realistic? >> not for every single one. i think in any insurgency, in any confli
karzai. i point that out simply because of the proximity to the seat of power theoretically in that country. afghan officials said three soldiers and two civilians were killed. 71 others wounded in that shooting. each of the seven militants were ultimately killed. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski is live from kabul with the latest. how are we to interpret this level of violence, jim, this close to the seat of power in that country? >> reporter: you know, the timing was unmistakable. the very time the taliban launched these attacks, president hamid karzai just inside the walls of the presidential palace was starting to swear in members of his new cabinet. so, you know, that timing wasn't lost on anybody. and what's interesting about this, is that while u.s. military officials are now praising the afghan security forces for beating back this attack today, the question is, how did they get those forces so close to the presidential palace in the first place? particularly because western intelligence officials have been predicting this very kind of attack, a co
the delegation. we rallied the world behind the administration's new strategy. since then, karzai has been re-elected, a messy election, but it's done. president obama's announced the 30,000 troops you just referred to. and it's a very good time to bring the world back together to reaffirm its support and to move to the next stage, because we're now -- 2010 is going to be a year of heavy implementation. >> is about getting money from these -- >> no, this is not a pledging conference. enough of those for the time being. countries are coming through, the japanese have just quadrupled their aid. we're going to increase our assistance in many ways, but this is about policy. >> now, let's go to afghanistan's attempts to try to get the taliban, at least not the leaders of the taliban, but sort of the rank and file of the taliban reintegrated in some form in the government. is this possible -- we see that every attempt, it feels like one step forward, three steps back at this point. >> let's not confuse two things. reintegration and reconciliation. i know these are complicated words, but reconciliat

karzai was beginning to swear in a new cabinet and the message from the taliban is unmistakable. despite whatever progress is being made by the afghan government or the coalition forces against taliban forces in the south, the taliban is trying to send a message to the afghan people that they are here to stay, tamron. >> jim miklaszewski live for us out of kabul, afghanistan, right now. and still ahead, more on the incredible rescues in haiti. how crews found and pulled one woman from the rubble of a collapsed supermarket and i will talk with an american trapped beneath the rubble of a hotel for 53 hours. ♪ my sunglasses. the people say i'm forgetful. maybe that's why we go to so many memorable places. love the road you're on. the subaru outback. motor trend's 2010 sport/utility of the year. would you like that to hurt now or later? uh-- what?

just steps away from the presidential palace. hamid karzai says security has now been restored to the capital where we find nbc news correspondent jim miklaszewski. mick, what can you tell us? what has unfolded and what are the numbers in terms of casualties? >> reporter: this was a highly sophisticated spectacular attack that begin, as you said, with a series of suicide bombers, both in automobiles, trucks and gunmen that had worn suicide bomb vests that attacked several targets simultaneously and then several gunman rushed in to a high-rise marketplace, armed with automatic weapons and grenades hanging from their vests, went up to the upper floors. from that position, they engaged afghan security forces in a fierce firefight that went on for about four hours. in the end, despite all the spectacular explosions and firefight, there were very few casualties. four afghan police and one child. as many as ten militants killed. but that really didn't matter, apparently, to the taliban. what mattered is that they believe they got their psychological target achieved, and that was that
as a combination of president musharraf and hamid karzai. he's a man who rules with an iron fist. his forces are killing his own people. he does not tolerate religious minorities. on the other side, he has an incredibly corrupt administration. so in some ways, he embodies the worst of both pakistan and afghanistan's leaders. >> what do you make of our sending back people over there for rehabilitation? i mean, one of the handlers of the attacker on christmas day was apparently sent back with the theory that he had been rehabilitated through art training. >> yes, he had been sent to saudi arabia, and saudi arabia has a rehabilitation program that gets quite high marks from people from independent observers, people in this country who have taken a close look at it. there's always going to be a few people who fall through, a few people who escape, if you like, the system. it's clear some of these people are turning up. saudi arabia, keep in mind, has been cracking down on al qaeda and its own borders, and a lot of those people have been fleeing across the borders to yemen. so the situation in ye

. those cables show ambassador karl eikenberry was even more worried than previously thought about karzai's leadership. he wrote, "sending additional forces will delay the day when afghans take over and make it difficult if not impossible to bring our people home on a reasonable timetable." >> and white house chief of staff rahm emanuel is under fire on the front page of t"the wall street journal". the paper writes that the president's liberal backers are blaming the chief of staff from a long list of grievances from gitmo to health care. they're directing their anger less at president obama than at rahm emanuel. he says he's the obstacle to the changes they thought mr. obama's election would make. and look at this full page ad moveon is running in "usa today." if people read newspapers in their hard copy form, this might be effective. i don't know if the white house even gets hard copies of newspapers anymore. still, it shows you where this is going. >> they had some problems. we'll move on -- we should mention before we finish here that first read, you've got to check it out. we update

is surely expected to rise. the brazen attack was well-timed. and broke out just as president karzai was swearing in members of his new cabinet. hours after the main attack, there are still reports of sporadic gunfire. and much of the central city remains under total lockdown. >> that was jim in cabal. >>> the turkish man who shot pope john paul ii is out of prison. he spent 29 years behind bars for wounding the pope for crimes in turkey. he was taken to a military hospital for an evaluation. >>> in other news, "avatar" was among the big winners at last night's golden globe awards, winning best film, drama and winning the best director award for james cameron. among those getting top honors in acting, sandra bullock, meryl streep in "julie & julia." jeff bridges and robert downey jr. we're going to have a full wrap-up coming up. r. >>> the new york jets and minnesota vikings are celebrating big wins in the nfl playoffs. on sunday, the jets stunned the chargers, 17-14, advancing to the afc championship game in minneapolis. and brett favre threw four touchdown passes as the vikings cru
